    when I do a netstat command in a DOS prompt, the first thing that is shows is that UNKNOWN-86.mediaplex.com:HTTP is connected through port 2550, and is in a TIME_WAIT state. This cannot be good. I have ZoneAlarm up and running, but there were times recently when I've been diagnosing problems with the broadband connection, and ZA wasn't on.

    I'm still learning, so I don't quite know what a TIME_WAIT is, or even how mediaplex made this connection, or what it means. At any rate, this connection is there, and I don't want it. How do I break this connection, and block mediaplex from connecting through that port?

    What is port 2550's normal function?
